New asynchronous online mentor training course!

The Building the Foundation for e-Mentoring course includes the important foundational topics that all mentors need, tailored for the e-mentoring experience.

Overview

e-Mentors need training tailored to their experience so they:

  • Know what to expect when mentoring a mentee they may never meet in-person
  • Understand the unique role and boundary issues that can arise in e-mentoring relationships
  • Are prepared to meet and get to know their mentee

Online mentoring is the ideal format for e-mentors, because they should be trained in a format similar to how they will interact with their mentees.

Six motivating lessons.

Empower your e-Mentors with high-quality, interactive, engaging, easy-to-use training.

INTRODUCTION TO E-MENTORING

Orientation to e-mentoring and answers to commonly asked questions about mentors. Discover the benefits of e-mentoring for youth.

MANAGING MOTIVATIONS

Realistic expectations regularly distinguish between mentoring relationships that last versus those that end prematurely. Mentors learn realistic expectations to support positive outcomes.
